CROWDS flocked in their droves to an an­nual town event at the weekend.

For more than 20 years the Bea­cons­field Society has run the an­nual Bea­cons­field Now! com­mu­nity fun day, an event which brings to­gether char­i­ties and not-for-profit or­gani- sa­tions. This year the event, which took place from 11am un­til 2pm, was held on Satur­day May 6, with hun­dreds of peo­ple treated to a range of events through­out the day

in one of the town’s big­gest days in its cal­en­der.

Ac­cord­ing to the Bea­cons­field Now! Face­book page, more than 400 cars were at the event as peo­ple turned out in their thou­sands, with or­gan­is­ers dub­bing it a “mas­sive suc­cess”.

If these pho­tos are any­thing to go by, it looked like a fan­tas­tic fam­ily fun day out, as both young and old can be seen tak­ing part in may­pole danc- ing, there was a clas­sic car show, bouncy cas­tle and a minia­ture steam train.

A num­ber of dif­fer­ent com­mu­nity events and or­gan­i­sa­tions set up stalls for the day, while lo­cal dig­ni­taries, in­clud­ing town crier Dick Smith and Bea­cons­field mayor Pa­trick Ho­gan, min­gled with the at­ten­dees.

In pre­vi­ous years the event has been held out­side the town hall, but for a change this year’s the event was held at Bea­cons­field Rugby Club to al­low more peo­ple to visit by car.

The Bea­cons­field Now! Face­book page stated: “It was good to see the kids do­ing their may­pole dance at Bea­cons­field Now this year down at the rugby club. New venue and mas­sive turnout through­out the day and thanks again to ev­ery­one who came along to sup­port and par­tic­i­pate.”
